Companion Animal Association of Arizona, Inc.
A non-profit organization of volunteers dedicated to enhancing the quality of lives of people through its Social Pet Therapy Program—certifying and providing social pet therapy teams to the adult residential and healthcare facilities throughout the Phoenix metropolitan area since 1986
Among our early initiatives, we worked for enactment of state and local laws to allow elderly and disabled people to keep pets in public housing. We also served as a watchdog to ensure that these new rights were protected.
As of the spring of 2012, we had approximately 40 pet therapy teams visiting 60 care facilities. Our members made over 480 visits in 2011.
The mission of the Companion Animal Association of Arizona, Inc.
is to enhance the quality of lives of people by promoting the Human/Companion Animal
Bond and to provide support when the bond is broken.
